Outlook for Mac

The following process was developed for Outlook for Mac 2011. Entourage 2008 and earlier are similar, but the exact location of several buttons and checkboxes have moved. Please refer to Microsoft KB article 980617 for assistance.

  1. Click the Tools menu and select Accounts…
  2. Click E-mail Account in the middle of the screen (only shown if no other accounts have been configured), or click + (plus button) in the lower left and select E-mail…



  3. Enter your email address and password, then enter your email address again as your user name. Select POP or IMAP (whichever you prefer) as the server type, then enter get.800hosting.com for Incoming server, and select the Use SSL to connect (recommended) checkbox. Now enter send.800hosting.com for Outgoing server, and select both the Override default port and Use SSL to connect (recommended) checkboxes, then change the outgoing port (in the small box after the colon (:)) to 587 and click Add Account.



  4. Once you have added the account, you may want to set a friendly description (“Work Mail,” for example) for the account, and enter your full name to appear in messages you send out. Now click More Options…



  5. Choose Use Incoming Server Info for Authentication.
